An informational forum on the 2019 General Conference (GC) – The Church and Human Sexuality – Finding a way Forward. The forum will offer a panel discussion on the UMC history with issues related to human sexuality; why we are having a special GC session in 2019 focused on these issues; how the special session will proceed and what can we expect as possible outcomes; and what might those GC outcomes mean for the greater UMC and our own local church in terms of teachings, policies and practices.
